Lost with Wake on Lan from Suspend / Shutdown

Postby Guest » Wed Jan 21, 2009 10:50 am

Hello fellow Minters,

i've have problem with Wake on Lan (GA- MA78Gm-S2H). Its simple not working. I've tryed almost everything - correction of init.d/halt + rc0-9.d + deinstallation of netwokmanager and new driver for r8168 was probed also... Stil not working.

Some details : Linux Mint 6.0 installed from Live CD to HDD. System consist only with GA- MA78Gm-S2H, 2 Gb Kingston 667 DDR2 and HDD WD500gb. Everything works perfect. Really everything - even Video.even after suspend ( S3 STR ). So i can perfectly suspend and wakeup PC from Keyboard, mouse, Knob on the BOX...but not with WOL :( Furthermore - ethtool -s eth0 wol pug with following poweroff -f sets PC in intresting stance - if i just plug rj45 from behind off PC and right after plug it back - PC starts like it should. Just poweroff -f is not very good idea for data consistancy :) With suspend - its not works with WOL. Simple no reaction at all. So is there a sophisticated solution to it? I need it really bad for my NAS. :(

Thank you in advance.

Is WOL activated in BIOS?
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Yes it is. Solved problem with installing WinXP :( Its suks but i've spend almost one week on it and not got my PC WakeOnLan...able.
In my opinion ( probably humble :)) - to much autoscripts doing to much trouble if you trying to fight against. Like not mountable r8169/r8168/r8101 or Network Manager doing too much hidden job on reconnecting / autoloading of eth drivers etc.

Sure im not Linux guru ( not even a geek :) )but its strange to see configs that are overdone by other modules ( network/interfaces | network manager) without slightly possiblity of fine tuning of thise hilevel applets. :oops:

I still have Linux Mint on my Flash - so ill try to check WOL with new releases.
